    US State and Local Building Codes: How to tackle compliance challenges

    Society demands for safe, secure, healthy, energy efficient, accessible, functional, sustainable, high-performance buildings within a budget and timeline. The U.S. Codes & Standards development process is a reflection of American values. Free from centralized government control but strengthened through essential governmental participation. Codes & Standards are developed scientifically, and support the needs of our society extremely well. But because we have such a large country, local variations make the codes complex and difficult to digest, understand and comply. As architects we are responsible satisfying the society's high demands while complying with enforced codes and standards. In this session we will be describing the challenges and search for the solutions, with the focus on small architectural firms.
